While siblings make our lives interesting, these sibling duos of filmmakers has been keeping us entertained.
Take a look.
#1 Abbas and Mastaan Burmawalla
The most iconic sibling pair in Bollywood popularly known as Abbas-Mastaan is known to direct thrillers with fantastic twisted plots. The brothers have been there for decades now giving us cult hits like Baazigar, Ajnabee, Race, etc.
#2 Zoya and Farhan Akhtar
Siblings with eccentric parents Shabana Azmi and Farhan Akhtar, It’s safe to say that richness in talent comes naturally. Zoya has made her name in any contemporary actor’s list of directors that they would work with. Her ventures include massive hits like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Dil Dhadakne Do, and Made in Heaven. On the other hand, Farhan has worn several hats being a director, actor, lyricist, singer, and producer.
#3 Anurag and Abhinav Kashyap
The rule-breakers of Bollywood, this brother duo worked on everything that was not conventional to the Bollywood image. From raunchy dialogues to raw plots, the freshness brought by the directors was genuine and relevant to the backdrop of the movie stories. Anurag’s Gang of Wasseypur created ripples while Abhinav popularised the Dabbang frenzy.
#4 Farah and Sajid Khan
While Farah made an over the top drama in a movie as her forte, Sajid has become famous as the filmmaker who can make lame comedy and yet attract an audience.
#5 Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Bela Bhansali Sehgal
We all know how a majestic film set with a larger than life movie experience is always related to Sanjay Leela Bhansali. His sister, Bela also debuted as a director with Shirin Farhad ki Toh Nikal Padi. Sadly, the comedy flick did not do well.
#6 Rohit and Hriday Shetty
A big-budget film with starry names, cars blowing up, drama, comedy, and cracking dialogues- the only name that comes to our mind is Rohit Shetty. His brother Hriday is also a director. However much contrary to Rohit’s loud style, he is subdued one who makes artsy and intense movies like Pyar Mein Twist and Chaalis Chauraasi.
#7 BR Chopra and Yash Chopra
The powerful and one of the empire builders of Bollywood, this sibling duo is hands down has made some path-breaking movies to make Bollywood one of the greatest movie industries in the world.
#8 Imtiaz, Sajid and Arif Ali
A passionate filmmaker Imtiaz, we already know how he intertwines realism and romance with each of his releases. His brothers Sajid and Arif are also directors. While Sajid does screenplay, Arif directs TV ads.
